Blacklisting Baidu [forbes.com]

The music industry is trying to put a face on online piracy in China, and punch that face squarely in the nose.

Leading international and Chinese record companies joined hands Tuesday to announce an unprecedented alliance to take on Baidu.com, China’s dominant search engine.

They are calling on businesses to stop advertising on Baidu.com and vowed Tuesday to collectively lobby the National Copyright Administration of China to take action against the Nasdaq-listed company.

Right now, Baidu is carrying out a new "profit share" program. Hope this will compensate the music industry.

National Copyright Administration of China

Is that the same organization that sanctions having unpaid college students work printing, binding and distributing bootleg copies of copyrighted protected U.S. and international (non-Chinese) books?

Or maybe the same people who sanction China exporting FOLEX watches, ARMANY suits and LEEVI jeans?

No. The NCAC appears to be more of a policy making body. They also investigate infringement claims:

Profile for "National Copyright Administration of the People's Republic of China (NCAC)" [greatwallip.com]

The NCAC's function is to organize the drafting of laws, regulations, and rules in relation to copyright, and to draw up copyright administravie policies and measures and organize their implementation. The NCAC also investigates and deals with copyright infringment cases having nationwide effect according to the law, and gives guidance to the local copyright administrative department on their work. The NCAC further approves the establishment of copyright collective administration organizations, and to supervise and guide them in their work.

While in general as an author I like more enforcement of copyright, I've also more business sense in my pinkie than the blind execs at the head of the music and movie industry combined.
Why can't they see they are utterly alienating their paying customers ?

Baidu just got a large advertising order(valued ten million Yuan) for its "Digital Music Alliance"
News said yesterday that Baidu will share this money with other 70 disco-company members.
Maybe it¡¯s a positive signal for the engaged parties?
